Every year your HVAC system works twenty-four hours a day, three hundred and sixty-five days a year to keep you comfortable. Year after year the wear and tear of your system builds up and hinders its ability to function properly. But this year is going to be different because you’re going to invest in HVAC maintenance. You will invest in your HVAC system’s health, and the future of your home comfort, because of its numerous and significant benefits.
In this blog, we will discuss the several benefits HVAC maintenance provides to those who invest in it. After reading this blog, you’ll see for yourself why just a couple check-ups a year can be the difference between owning an HVAC system and owning a great HVAC system.
Just about everyone we know has had to repair their heating or cooling unit at some point in their life. You’ll remember it because you were probably miserable inside your home that was either too hot or cold. With HVAC maintenance you can eliminate the need for expensive and inconvenient HVAC repairs almost entirely. A professional HVAC technician can look through your system and ensure that there is nothing significantly threatening to the overall health of the unit.
Gaining peace of mind and guaranteeing your comfort throughout the year is nice, but avoiding the costs of an expensive repair is better. Thankfully you can have both and more when you do routine HVAC maintenance.
Energy efficiency and HVAC health go hand in hand. A system that is at risk of repair is probably inefficient in its fuel usage as well. Stress among interconnecting parts leads to excessive wear and tear and fuel consumption. When an HVAC technician maintains your unit, he or she will make sure all the parts inside the unit are working in perfect harmony with one another.
The cooperation among parts is important to fuel usage. A system that works seamlessly within itself won’t have to compensate any shortcomings by burning extra fuel. Thus, when you invest in HVAC maintenance, you invest in energy efficiency. The return on your investment will be the amount you save on your utility bill every month.
HVAC Life Expectancy
Your HVAC system has an expiration date; it’s just a fact. A furnace typically lasts 15 years while air conditioners last 10, but those are just projections. You can exceed those projections, and elongate that life through HVAC maintenance. As we discussed earlier, HVAC repairs can be prevented by HVAC maintenance, through the reduction of natural wear and tear. It’s that same wear & tear that builds up and eventually causes a system to shut down permanently.
With consistent HVAC maintenance, year after year, you can exceed the expected lifespan of your unit. Putting off the purchase of a new HVAC unit puts money back in your wallet for years to come. And as a final note, if you ever put your home on the market, prospective homebuyers will love to see an HVAC unit that has been well taken care of over the years.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
You can significantly improve your respiratory and sinus health through HVAC maintenance. As your HVAC technician maintains your system they can also clean it of any dust and debris. Removing dirt and debris at the source (HVAC system & ductwork) clears the air inside your home. HVAC maintenance is not limited to just the HVAC unit itself but extends to the accessories. Your HVAC technician can clean out the ductwork and replace your air filters, further enhancing the air you breathe in your home.
